During the Covid-19 pandemic, visiting restrictions were implemented in most countries and health care sectors to reduce the spreading of Covid-19. However, little is known about the effects of visiting restrictions, either from a virus transmission perspective or as to their impact from the perspectives of patients, families or care provided. Therefore, a literature review was conducted to explore the consequences of visitor restrictions in health care services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
